Bill Bradley (Exclusively WSB)

The recent recession proved that society has not learned from the mistakes of the past. While many look to blame private industry for the ongoing economic turmoil, Bill Bradley shows that it is bad political judgment that brought us to the brink of collapse. In this highly informative and timely discussion, Bradley looks at the economic meltdown and outlines how we got here through a mix of too much leverage, not enough regulation and forgetting the economic indiscretions that caused previous recessions. Moving forward, Bradley advocates the need to embrace a culture of innovation that invests in our educational system as the foundation for preventing such economic turbulence in the future. Bradley shares with audiences:

  • The direct connection between faltering economics and failing schools
  • How education is necessary to stay competitive with China and other emerging powers 
  • What steps leaders in Washington need to make to not only fix economic regulation but also fix crumbling schools

Gordon Brown (Exclusively WSB)

Gordon Brown believes that they key to developing the workforce of tomorrow is transforming education today. He explains how education unlocks better health, greater social stability, more rights and opportunities for women, and a higher standard of living. In his role as United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education, he works to find funding for the 59 million children currently out of school by persuading national governments and the international community to take their responsibilities to these children seriously. In this presentation, Brown discusses how educated populations boost economies, how the digital revolution is changing the way people learn, and why education reform is essential so both young people and those already working can continue to gather the skills they need to compete.

Sarah Brown (Exclusively WSB)

Acknowledging the dire need to help impoverished nations, in 2001 the United Nations adopted the Millennium Development Goals to create long-lasting change around the rights of each person on the planet to health, education, shelter and security. As a leader intimately involved with these efforts from her role on the front lines of the struggle to create a more just world—particularly when it comes to issues of health equity and women’s health, Sarah Brown is a compelling voice in the global campaign to end injustice, poverty and inequality. In her keynote presentations, Brown highlights the progress that has been made—and the opportunities to do good that still exist. Brown’s words inspire action in identifying and empowering those around the globe to extend help to those most in need.

Barbara Pierce Bush (Exclusively WSB)

United in their humanitarian missions and the spirit of service—as well as through their close family bond—Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager have found a shared purpose in giving voice to the disadvantaged while bringing to light stories of hope. Coming from a unique vantage point as the only twins to grow up in the White House as both grandchildren and children, Barbara and Jenna were inspired to live lives of meaning from an early age. Stemming from their travels to impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America, they have now made it their life’s calling to address the most pressing health, education and economic inequality issues of our time. Whether through Barbara’s creation of Global Health Corps or Jenna’s position as a Today correspondent and UNICEF chair, both women help spread the message that ideas put to action are the best kind. With their special brand of infectious warmth and kind humor—evidenced in their delightful back and forth banter during their presentations—this dynamic pair will ignite an audience’s passion to serve and inspire future young leaders to give back in their schools, local communities or abroad.
